Library Endowment Fund Raising Event


Campbell County Public Library’s final Cabin Fever Reliever event for the spring is just around the corner. We’re moving our 5K Run/Walk to Campbell County Recreation Center this year and it will surely “light up your life”! Our 5K Glow Run/Walk is Saturday, May 10 – 5 p.m. registration, 6 p.m. start. Get up, get out, get “glowing” and help The Library Foundation Bring Bucks Back to Campbell County libraries by raising funds for the CCPLS Endowment!

We’re turning out the lights in the Rec Center Field House, turning on some tunes, and lighting up some fun games for chances to win prizes. Costumes are encouraged – prizes awarded. Registration is free for kids accompanied by an adult and $20 for age 18 and up. Sign up by stopping at the library in Gillette or Wright during regular library hours, or print out the registration form (see link above) and drop it off at either library. Please make checks payable to The Library Foundation or LFI. You may also register the day of the event starting at 5 p.m. The Run/Walk starts at 6 p.m. Paid participants will receive a Cabin Fever Reliever t-shirt and shirts will be available for others to purchase for $10 each. All participants will be entered into our prize drawings that will be held at the end of the race. Fun games will give you extra tickets to enter into the drawings. You never know what challenges are ahead, but you will know your participation is for a good cause – your local library endowment!

Proceeds from Cabin Fever Reliever events benefit The Library Foundation’s goals in The Wyoming Public Library Endowment Challenge Program that began in July of 2008. Every dollar raised for Campbell County libraries during this Challenge is matched by the state up to $686,957. With the state match and $100,000 bonus, The Library Foundation has raised $800,000 since 2008 only another $100,000 to raise (plus the match) to reach our goal and a million dollar endowment. This endowment will allow our libraries in Gillette and Wright funds for collection development, programming, equipment, staffing, and beyond.
